Hiii 🙂

You know what? I love being a food blogger. Like reeeeally love it. Being able to interact with the most creative, inspiring, caring, hilarious and genuine people on a daily basis is waaay more than I could of asked for when I started my blog.

One of the BEST parts of blogging is all the recipes! Duh, right? Ever since we got back from the Dominican I have been trying out recipes I have saved in my “Eat it Nowww” folder 🙂

First up was buckwheat groat porridge from Emilia at Namaste Gurl.

I have had buckwheat groats in my cupboard for about…..ummmm a year? With no idea what to do with them. Until nooow.

Blend the crap out of them.

I added the 1/4 cup of buckwheat groats, 1 tbsp of chia seeds and a dash of cinnamon to a pot.

Then added 1 cup water, 1/4 cup of almond milk and 1/2 tsp of vanilla.

Cooked over medium heat, stirring often for about 10 minutes.

In the last couple minutes I added a banana and smooshed it up with a fork.

I topped it with mighty maple peanut butter, raspberry jam, granola and more almond milk. The buckwheat tastes a little earthier than my usual scottish oats but I still really liked it and it was sooo easy!

Next I made Kathleen from Kat’s Health Corner’s Almond Joy Pizzert Babies!

Omgsssssh you guys these are crazy good. And good for you!

Good food alwayss warrants a photo shoot 🙂

I mixed 1 tbsp mighty maple peanut butter with 2 tsbp almond milk and warmed it up in the microwave for 30 seconds to pour on top and added some granola and coconut. Heavenforsuuuure.

I have already made these three separate times they are that good!!! And they are soo cute 😀

Neext I made cheezy kale chips! I based my recipe from my brother Jordan’s recipe at the Organic Revolution.

Sorry I don’t have more pictures! We are koo koo for kale chips in this house! I have a double batch in the dehydrator right now though!

I also made Lauren’s English muffins but didn’t take any pictures during the baking process apparently. Check out her blog Lauren Loves Good Food for the recipe, awesome pics and tutorial!! I only made two modifications, I used spelt flour instead of bread flour and baked them for 20 minutes at 350F instead of frying them. They are delicious.

I have been eating them as mini sandwiches for snacks. Peanut butter and pickles. Anyone else like this combo???

BITE!

Goat cheese and raspberry jam.

BX2.

You guys already know how much I love Susan’s sunflower hummus.

I had it for supper tonight with quinoa crackers, sauteed kale with vinegar (obsessssssed), avocado, couscous, goat cheddar, pumpkin seeds and pecans.

And now I have a recipe of my own to share with you 🙂

Lentil Pita Pizza

  • 1 whole wheat pita
  • homemade pizza sauce (store bought or pasta sauce work too)
  • 1/2 cup green lentils, cooked in veggie broth
  • 1/3 cup chopped pineapple
  • 2 tbsp grated cheese

Put all ingredients on top of pita and bake in preheated 400F oven for 15 minutes or until cheese is browned. Eaaaaasy.

Ahhhh these ingredients work soo well together! I really hope you guys try this!

Okay time for bed!

Have a fabulous Valentine’s weekend!

Love & hugs,

Paije xo

Qs: What recipes have you been eyeing up lately? Pleeease share!

Hey guys!

Happy Monday!

Did u have a good day?

It was hhhhhooootttt here today! Like 28C/82F.

Beasley and I spent the whole day outside being bums.

We had breakfast outside, too.

Strawberry Vanilla Rhubarb Smoothie

3/4 cup frozen strawberries

1/2 cup frozen rhubarb

1/2 scraped out vanilla bean

1 cup of almond milk

1 juiced orange

xanthan gum (optional)

Mix everything together in the blender. Drrrrink up!

Beasley had to examine the empty glass 😉

I read a bunch of cookbooks and the new Loulou magazine.

They did a piece on my little city! I was so excited to see this. Because Loulou is a Canadian magazine they are always doing feature pieces for shopping in a different city. I have looonged to see little old Saskatoon in the mag and I finally got to! YAY!

Please ignore my creepy shadow.

Lunch was eaten outside as well – I don’t usually like eating outside because of all the bugs but I just couldn’t bring myself to sit inside today.

Goat chedda slices, half a red pepper, red pepper hummus and about 1/3 cup leftover baked beans.

We had almost no food in our fridge (obvious by my leftovers lunch) so we made a big grocery shopping trip.

I was sooo hungry when we got home so supper was kind of made on the fly.

Homemade Annie’s macaroni made with Happy Herbivore’s low fat vegan nacho sauce and broccoli. A HUUUGE salad with roasted onions, asparagus, mushrooms, baked goat cheese discs and a tiny piece of cranberry walnut purple wheat bread.

That sauce is sooo goood! I’m planning on eating it tomorrow it for lunch too 🙂

The cheese was sliced into thin discs, dipped in an egg and then some panko bread crumbs with italian seasoning. They are baked in the oven on parchment paper for 15 minutes at 400F, flipped half way through.

MMmmmmm!

We took Beasley for a walk after supper and then came home and had dessert.

I bought cherries today at the grocery store and I couldn’t be more excited!! I look every time we go to the store and have been going through a super withdrawal all winter! Soooo I had some on top of my carrot cake ice cream and the last of the millet puff bars.

Okay it’s back to work tomorrow so I should get to bed. It’s a sweatmess in here so hopefully I’ll be able to get some sleep! 😉

See you tomorrow!!

Paije xx

PS. Thanks for all your sweet comments! They totally make my day ♥

Heys!!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!

(Fur moms count too!)

Did you guys have a good weekend?

Mine was pretty dece 🙂

Yesterday for breakfast I had muesli!

Which I haven’t had in forever! Sooo good.

I think it was about 1/3 cup muesli, 1/2 cup of almond milk and 1 tbsp of cashew butter.

We did some grocery shopping at Costco and then at Co-op.

I picked up a treat at each place.

Next to homemade hummus this is totally my favorite. Clearly evident by the massive tub I got 🙂

YUMMMMMM

I also got these chippers


They are made in Canada and taste AAAMAZING!! There is like 170 cal per 20 chips. LOOOOVE THEM!

I had them for lunch with a salad I picked up from Co-op. The bomb salad. It has some bean salad, greek salad, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, bean sprouts, carrots, and some nuts. It’s just out of this world.

No need for dressing.

Rock salt and vinegar chips with a cheese string.


After lunch we took Beasley for a walk and then we had a nap.

I fell asleep reading blogs haha.

Supper was made and eaten in a hurry.

Another “born yesterday” bun smothered in hummus and relish with a piece of mahi mahi baked with chili powder and paprika, 1/2 an orange and the rest of my salad.

We went over to my cousin’s for a games night after supper and it was so much fun. There was about 9 of us and we played Boulderdash. I had never played before and it was super funny but I am terrible at it! The story of a man and his pig was all I could come up with for a movie script. And everyone knew it was mine 😦

Have you ever played Boulderdash??

I snacked on too much last night! Like waaay too many snacks haha.

We had a huge fruit tray with dip, licorices, cheezies, and hickory sticks.

And maybe some frozen yogurt and more chips when I got home 😉

***

I woke up today and took Beasley for a walk first thing.

Along our walk I came across these beautiful violets.

I used to get them for my mom when I was little for mother’s day and couldn’t believe when I found one today.

I stuck it in her card and sent it home with my brother.

***

For breakfast I made a smoothie of strawberries, 1/2 a frozen banana, freshly squeezed orange juice, a handful of spinach and some xanthan gum. I tossed some granola on top for a little crunch.

My mom sent me an awesome book!

And while I was flipping through it I came across this page

Did anyone know this???? I had no idea. I always yank out too much tinfoil. NOT ANYMORE.

For luunch I had a barbequed veggie burger with mustard, hummus, cottage cheese and triscuits.

It was so simple but so perfect.

Then it was BATH TIME for Beasley!!

He’s been smelling pretty stanky lately 🙂

Hahaha omg I just love that face.

Andrew did the 30 day Shred with me today! It was awesome. I would rather work out with someone then alone and he is such a good workout buddy. We were both sweeeeeating!! And almost late for supper.

We went to Andrew’s parent’s house for Mother’s Day supper tonight and we brought a salad with organic greens with dill, red peppers, goat chedda, mushrooms and onions. And we made some spinach and artichoke dip cups. Supper was so amazing. We had salad, roasted potatoes and carrots, salmon skewers and garlic bread. Andrew’s sister-in-law made death by chocolate for dessert. I almost died. I wanted to eat the whole bowl, but I refrained. Barely 😉 No pics though! So sorry!!

Okay, it is totally bed time now!

It’s back to work tomorrow for me and I need my beauty sleep.

Sweeet dreams bloggiessss!

See ya tomorrow!


Paije xx

I sure am!! Most of you, probably not. I am on days off so Monday is the sweetest day this week 🙂 Sorry I haven’t been here for the last couple of days, I just feel like I have too much going on between night shifts. You understand. I have lots of pics of the last two days but I’ll just spotlight a few of the food ones so I’m not here ALL NIGHT LONG (all niiiight).

I don’t know which day I got these, but they were the highlight of my last couple days so they are going to go first.

Orchids are my faaavorite! Orchids and tulips. Andrew is a good boyfriend. Haha.

Some breakfasts included homemade hashbrowns, peppers, mushrooms and a poached egg

waffle sandwich with two egg whites, lc and jam. Topped with a tbsp of maple syrup and smushed.

spinach smoothie with 1 cup original unsweetened almond milk, 3/4 banana, a handful of blueberries, two big handfuls of spinach and 3 strawberries.

yes I like to eat crap colored smoothies

Lunches are sort of mixed with dinners because I just eat all night long on night shifts. Really. I should probably get help.

new wrap with mustard, hummus, spinach, peppers, veggie burger, and pickles with steamed edamame.

These wraps are the shiiiiit. Go get yourself some.

Wok Box Jungle Curry with all vegetables and an Awake tea latte from buckys.

whole wheat macaroni and broccoli with mushroom gravy and goat chedda.

There are many many many unpictured snacks and little bites here and there. There is one snack though that could not go unpictured. Ranch nuts and bolts. With fishies. From Julie. Oh jeez.

This is literally like crack to me. I am soo addicted. Love love love love ♥

Speaking of Julie, she wanted to do a little guest post. I shared my orange with her last night and she took a pic with her Blackberry and sent this quote with it:

Well colour me HAPPY!! Paije shared her o-r-a-n-g-e with me! Start a revolution “Up with Paije”

She is so cute. And totally my favorite.

I had a super shweet supper date with my dad and brother tonight. Fish taco. The first bite was kind of raunchy but it got better. Then I put too much habanero sauce on and burnt my mouth. FIRE MOUTH.

So now I’m hungry again. Hmmmm….I have a super craving for theeese pancakes that I saw yesterday, but I will wait for breakfast 🙂

And now, last but not least….MY PACKAGE FINALLY CAME!!! I have been wanting these for the longest time and my mom finally ordered them for me 3 weeks ago. I can’t tell you what they are just yet because that would be no fun, but trust me, it’s going to be awweeesosoososme!!

beasley was just as excited as I was

I am very sad that I didn’t get to participate in National Grilled Cheese Day 😦 but I’m going to try to make up for it tomorrow. Do-overs are allowed here right???

I’ll be back tomorrow with lots of eats and treats and shenanigans. Can’t wait!! Sleep tight monsters!
